Lamborghini names a special edition Gallardo after their test driver
A very moving story from a very famous brand.
He has long been revered as one of the many legends surrounding the world’s most uncompromising sports car brand Valentino Balboni, a remarkable test driver with his own personal cult status. Automobili Lamborghini now presents a model in his honour and bearing his name the Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni.
There’s something about this that I really like. Maybe it’s the story. Maybe it’s the hope that not all jobs leave you feeling souless. I really like Balboni’s comments about being a ‘represenative of Lamborghini’ and how important that is to him; as well as in endless gratitude to the company for what they’ve done for him: a monument.
Love what you do. Do what you do with passion. If not, change.
